On Friday, January 29, 2021, we posted a piece entitled Ethiopian Prime Ministry Abiy Ahmed, Declares Military Victory
In a dramatic and stunning reversal of military fortunes of the warring parties, the Tigray Defence Forces routed the powerful Ethiopian National Defence Forces, captured most of the cities and towns of Tigray before triumphantly entering Mekele the capital of Tigray Regional State at the end of last month.
